Cat for Adoption: Lailie
Lailey came to the ARK shelter as a sweet, stray kitten. That was nine years ago. For whatever reason, no doubt her less-than-popular tortoise-shell coloring, Lailey was passed over all these years. With the many success stories prompted by the Japan Times photo box, however, hope that Lailey will find a home has been revived. The staff members are keeping their fingers crossed with memories of such as Queenie, in ARK for eight long years, and Zeros, who despite a slight health condition, found a loving home that radically improved his condition. Then there was Zeros’ friend, Otto, who was adopted happily into the same home. And there was Tetta and Neeta, both with health troubles from a traumatic start to life. There have been many miracle tales and they are giving all hope, including Lailey. Not an aggressive bone in her body, a sweetheart who loves to play with people, Lailey’s happiness is just being with someone. All she needs is someone happy to be with her.
